Eyelash Extensions: The Pros

  • Confidence: You’ll feel more confident in your appearance knowing that your eyes are framed perfectly.
  • Convenience Getting Ready for Work: You’ll cut down on the time you spend in the mirror preparing for your day because you can skip elaborate eye makeup. Your eyes will already look glamorous!
  • Customized for You: Whether your natural lashes are thin, short, or lack lift, eyelash extensions are applied by a professional who will customize the lashes to look great on you. This is a major improvement over drugstore false lashes which are one size fits all.

Lash extensions can be expensive.
  • Costly: Initial application of lashes can be a fairly spendy investment. Plus, you’ll need to spend money on upkeep. Of course, when it’s time to remove the lashes, you’ll also pay a fee to the lash stylist.
  • High Maintenance: Plan the time for a visit to the eyelash salon every two weeks to have your lashes maintained by a professional.
  • Breakage of Natural Lashes: Professionally applied eyelashes shouldn’t cause breakage to your natural eyelashes. However, if you are prone to rubbing your eyes due to dry eyes, allergies, or any medical condition, skip lash extensions. Rubbing can cause damage to your natural lashes.
